Revolutionary and renegade, Keith Haring was an artist for the people, creating an instantly recognizable repertoire of symbols that became synonymous with the volatile culture of the 1980s. Haring playfully slammed into all aspects of this decade – hip-hop, new wave, graffiti, gay culture – and brought them together, while his fanatical drive propelled him into the orbit of the most interesting people of his time. Famous at 25, dead from AIDS at 31, Haring is remembered as a Pied Piper, an unpretentious communicator who appeared happiest mentoring a gang of kids, arming them with brushes and attacking the nearest wall.
Keith Haring is part of the 'Lives of the Artists' series: highly readable short biographies of the most popular artists
